North Africa, 1942. Dust, heat, thirst, flies. Nothing here to harm but the sand, the enemy and yourself. A good clean fight, for those who like that sort of thing, and some do. From an advanced landing field, striking hard and escaping fast, our old friends from Fanny Barton's Hornet Squadron (Piece of Cake) play Russian roulette, flying their clapped-out Tomahawks on ground-strafing forays. On the ground, the men of Captain Lampard's S.A.S. patrol drive hundreds of miles behind enemy lines to plant bombs on German aircraft. This is the story of the desert war waged by the men of the R.A.F. and S.A.S. versus the Luftwaffe and the Afrika Korps, a war of no glamour and few heroes in a setting often more lethal than the enemy. A follow up to Piece of Cake, A Good Clean Fight brings the desert war to life in Robinson's inimitable style. And as ever when military intelligence is involved, intrigue and idiocy go hand in hand.
